The Young Sinclairs' New Line-up Rocks Strange Matter!

THE YOUNG SINCLAIRS made a second live appearance in as many months in Richmond, VA on Saturday February 9, 2013. The band, which also contains two new members (both based in Richmond, VA - and also play in indierock outfit PEACE BEAST) blazed through a set list kicking off with the high energy of the title track from their 2010 PSR 7" EP (also appearing as an album track via the 2010 LP "Chimeys") We Spoke Our Minds". The night was filled with some familiar classic Sinclairs songs: "Have A Home", "You Know Where To Find Me", and "I'll Get Even" among others. The Young Sinclairs also introduced several new tracks from "Far Away From Near" to the lastest single release - "Hurt My Pride" - and it's B-side "Nothin' To Say" . The band sizzled through a solid evening of melodic classic jangly/chimey guitar drivenindiepop/rock. Also on the bill for the evening: PEACE BEAST (which includes Joe Lunsford & Kyle Harris of YS) and former Young Sinclairs guitarist SEAN POFF and his band THE MISSIONARIES. Richmond based band HEAVY MIDGETS closed the evening out. Lead Sinclair Sam Lundsford confirmed more dates coming - a date in Boone, NC is the newest confirmed.

Check out the live video clip from Strange Matter on 02.09.13 - THE YOUNG SINCLAIRS "You Know Where To Find Me"

We had the pleasure of witnessing The legendary Monkees on their 2012 12 City Tour. Although bitter sweet with the recent
passing of Davy Jones, it marked the welcome return of Michael Nesmith. Between the 2011 Monkees Tour and 2012 - it's
very much in question to why this BAND is not in THE ROCK 'N' ROLL HALL OF FAME??? CLASSIC AMAZING SET-LIST!
